That’s what I’ve recently been learning on this journey of life.
According to this article at the American Psychological Association website, Psychologists define resilience as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress—
In other words, how we “bounce back”.
You may have noticed that my writing has trickled down to my once a month offering of a Tuesday Truth. In all honesty, it took a lot just to show up for that. But it was important to me to honor my commitment to all of you and also to myself.
If you’ve read Tuesday Truth #69 and Tuesday Truth #70 then you are already familiar with the fact that I share most truths as much for my own reminders as well as encouragement for anyone who stumbles upon my words.
There is still a ways to go in my current journey but I feel like there is a beacon of light upon the horizon. It is still dim, but it is there, and I know it will be shining brightly upon my arrival.
Life is filled with chaos and calm.
If you are walking through the chaos, know that you CAN endure it.
Just continue taking one step forward.
And then take the next step.
When you make it through, pick up that light, turn around and shine it towards the person still trying to make their way along the path.
Remember: You are stronger than you know.
Let your light shine!
